Rights Unit Finds Bias Against Transgender Student
Coy Mathis, 6, center, played video games in March while at home in Fountain, Colo., with her sister Dakota, left, and their mother, Kathryn. By DAN FROSCH Published: June 23, DENVER A Colorado school district discriminated against a transgender first grader when it refused to let her use the girls bathroom, the states civil rights division has determined, a decision gay and transgender advocates say will have an indelible impact on how such cases are handled in the future.
In a sharply worded ruling, the division concluded that the Fountain-Fort Carson School District needlessly created a situation in which the student, Coy Mathis, would be subject to harassment when it barred her from the girls bathroom even though she clearly identified as female.
Telling Coy that she must disregard her identity while performing one of the most essential human functions constitutes severe and pervasive treatment, and creates an environment that is objectively and subjectively hostile, intimidating or offensive, Steven Chavez, the division director, wrote in the decision.
The dispute over whether Coy, 6, should be allowed to use the girls bathroom was seen by some as a critical test of how state antidiscrimination laws were applied to transgender students.
Born biologically a boy, Coy began identifying as a girl after just a few years, growing her wispy blond hair long, wearing dresses, and telling family and friends they should refer to her as female.
During kindergarten, Coys parents informed her school that their child identified as a girl and should be treated as one. Initially, the school, just south of Colorado Springs, agreed.

only two words needed in the face of this lunancy:
Just what kind of parents are indulging these kinds of fantasies in their kids — and this early, too?
The world is clearly much more evil and lunatic than before.
But. The important 2 words are not home school.
They are Almighty God.
ok - my 2 words are a means to your 2 word end :)
Look for a parent with an agenda and a big chip on her shoulder.
Do those parents need me to come over there with a fishing pole and a BB gun?
Better yet, arrest the parents of the child they are perverting. If this kids bathroom plumbing was designed for the boys room, then that is where he is to go.
Yes, a means of yielding to Almighty God.
This is so bad it is harrowing. It would have been treated as arrant child abuse very few decades ago.
Teach that boy to be a real boy!!
Aiding and abetting a six year old’s delusions is Child Abuse!
A six year old? The mother laughing sitting next to him in the picture? This is child abuse. The world has taken that step from insane to criminally insane. Pure evil.
There’s a spiritual dimension behind this too and it is demonic.
Two more: child abuse.
The picture shows Coyy sitting next to “her” sister. I wonder what sex “her” sister is.
I am willing to hold firm on the transgender issue because if we grant special rights to these people they will use their new found power to impose themselves on others and flaunt their life style and appearance on every one they meet
The next step after the recognition and mainstreaming of transponders will be a push for the rights of members of NAMBLA , the North American Man Boy Love Association
Good Lord! If he thought he was a dog would they insist he be allowed to water a tree?
“Her” and “she” refer to what, exactly?
There seems to be an ever increasing amount of stories like this growing in geometric progression...I think it is time to take a very good look at our water and food supplies.
The world is clearly much more evil and lunatic than before.Oh boy, you said a mouthful. Today ALONE, we've been bombarded with a couple stories [that affect us firsthand] that are almost unbelievable. So much hate out there. So much anger. But most of all, so much loneliness. It turns otherwise reasonable people into maniacs.
Nah. I’ve seen some “home schooled” inbred handiwork.
It was FALLIBLE and UNINSPIRING.
"I KNOW BUT ONE CODE OF MORALITY FOR MEN WHETHER ACTING SINGLY OR COLLECTIVELY"
Puke. The “parents” are EVIL.
Just who presented this to your perusal? Some liberal cherry picking pseudoreporter?
How do you think rednecks get to be hi tech???
This particular klan of homeskewlers were indoctrinated to fervently believe the world is only 5000 years old.
Sigh placemark for pingout.
Is that the worst? Dr. Ben Carson believes that and he does wonderful neurosurgery. While I do disagree with that theory, Dr. Carson clearly shows that it has nothing to do with the rest of applied sciences!
LOL. Nah, then there was this other time Pastor Homeschooler allowed a “Science” lesson whose “teacher” was convinced that gravity became weaker the closer two objects were.
Homeschooling is not a panacea.
How’s that A$$paper flowing from Chicago these days? That was pretty “high tech”.
Quite a cherry pick. You were unaware of course of the massive statistics showing that home schoolers blow the pants off of public and even private schoolers, academically?
You are a crypto socialist. I call you on it.
Sex, Evolution and Behavior
By Martin Daly and Margo Wilson
Private Lutheran Schools blew the pants of Public Schools.
My personal observation of HomeSkewlers whose “leadership” helped that system to implode has left me unimpressed with their work product.
How’s that HighTech Subprime A$$paper floating these days?
Girls are not a different species from boys.
It was a lot cheaper when it was a Text for Animal Behavior at Concordia University 30 years ago.
Used copies at the Amazon link starting at $0.32
Or you can probably obtain it via a library.
Affirmatively participating in another person’s delusion will not cure their mental illness.
You missed the point noob. His head is lying to him. It has nothing to do with species and everything to do with mental illness..
Does the dad have no balls? I mean, they say to pick your battles, but where does he draw the line? Jeez.
In a just world the parents would be arrested for child abuse.
Which pales in comparison to the increasing number of fallible and uninspiring mushheads that are produced by outcome based public education systems.
Your personal cherry pick observation?
You must be blind to facts.
dad? what dad? (betting it’s just a mom)
That's what you have done here
My personal experience.
If you think that’s “cherry picking” whilst worshiping your own image in the High Tech mirror, tough.
How’s that High Tech A$$paper floating?
Who owns the abandonment of the public school system?
Parents, or the lack thereof.
Yes you may have met some distasteful people. However I had hoped you were possessed of the wisdom to know your view was, indeed, limited, and would be glad, rather than defensive of your limited view, to learn that it is not at all a fair representative sample of the homeschool experience in the USA. If all the Filipinos you had known were robbers, does that mean all Filipinos in the USA are robbers, or even most of them?
I picked this name years ago and I will not cede it to snobbish cynics with false accusations.
(By the way I personally am an old-earth creationist FWIW but most young earthers know more truths about the theory of evolution and about physics than the average clueless modern American schoolboy or schoolgirl.)
I know it was self-evident that students of Lutheran Schools excelled beyond the capabilities of their public schooled peers - and know that work-product was as much due to the parents involved as it was due to the schools. Much as the inverse can be said of the public schools whose failure parents, or the selfish lack thereof, are also responsible for.
I base those opinions upon direct observation too. And I will continue to trust my own eyes and free mind over the ability of some gas bag who’s regurgitating factoids in a flaccid attempt to prop up the worship of their self.
>>I picked this name years ago
Then you’ve been worshiping your own flatulent “High Tech” image for a long time.
“And because of this, God gave them over” —Romans 1:25++
I offer my HiTech-ness and my RedNeck-ness to God the Father, in God the Son. I don’t know what you offer yourself to. But you might start with cutting the cynicality.
Education majors are taught by ultra leftist education college professors. The education majors have to toe the hardcore leftist line. Education colleges churn out leftist teachers.
Voila. We get what we get. Leftist sewage pits called public schools.
